Case Study Response to Text Neck and Mobile Phone Viewing Angle


I feel very fortunate to have been a part of the Text Neck study. This significant intervention was life changing, and I will continue with my care plan and stay vigilant of my posture while using electronics. I have even decreased my amount of texting in hopes to further prevent Text Neck! Words cannot express how grateful I am for having been part of the study.
